Currently working on the film for the jury. I am working on the ‘image obsession’ part through these animations. (also see text. this will be the intro chapter to situate the project ) it needs a lot of work so bear with me!
Then there will be the film chapter on the moving stills/ Cindy and constructing identity but i realised that i have been ‘forcing’ the idea of the mirror as the device through which we construct our identity but really the mirror has become irrelevant in this context. I think the mirror of today is the screen.
The thrid chapter is the factory chapter. Which needs a lot of work but i modelled a sort of google like ‘server’ super computer (whatever u call them) and i am filling my factory with them to make the point that architecture has become a construction on images that are constantly produced/copied/screenshot/modified/erased etc etc and as an absurd visualization of this idea the image factory becomes a ‘server room’ where I store all the infinite amount of images that the factory produces.
It is just like when in the matrix Morpheus is in the construct with Neo and tells him that the human being has been turned into a battery. Architecture as been turned into storage for its own image. An image that is replicated and altered at such speed that replaces architecture.
And finally (this is natasha’s idea and i m playing with it to see what happens) but the same way Neo (matrix again…) exists in the ‘real world’ and the ‘matrix world’ where he sees everything as code (you know…the green numbers scene and he dodges the bullets etc) what would the world look like if it was all made of its images?
i though quite literally…pixels. So i am playing with some pshop actions to make these pixel animations (i used my city model again just for the sake of the idea…that can be discussed..also again…colour?no colour? i think the cartoony colours bring it back to the cindy factory drawing…could be a cool loop?)
